I have the Google Sniper system by WF George Brown which is most excellent. I have a question about competing sites for keywords if other warriors could help me out with if they use the methods.......In the blueprint George recommends keywords that have no more than 7,000 competing sites for a keyword and to watch out for authority sites, forums etc. My question is how would a sniper site fare against article directories, namely Ezinearticles, Buzzle etc. Quite a few good and very usable keywords that I have found have no real competition with other sites but have quite a collection of articles from directories on page 1 of big G.
Will these articles prevent my sniper site from getting on page one or not because the articles themselves have no page rank?
Thanks in advance for any advice given.
